Spare yourself from this hassle and just buy "The Annotated Lolita."
I was stunned by how wonderful this book was. It is the best I have read in a long while. I'm sorry I never read it before.
I feel lucky I don't have a dark obsession... I feel lucky to enjoy gardening and petting my cat in the shade on a beautiful spring day.
So many terrible things happen in the world, and many start with an uncontrollable obsession. We wonder why do these shocking things happen. It is because there are dark secret fantasies in too many human hearts. And these people find it way to fulfill them.
And, surprisingly, the subject is still disquieting. Humbert Humbert's voice and Nabokov's overlap and intertwine, especially toward the end, revealing shame and guilt, as well as awareness of the damage done.
No matter; the early sunlit lust for the glorious nymphet, still whole and strong in her unsoiled, unconscious power, is unrivaled in literature.
The subject of pedophilia is deeply disturbing, but does that mean we should ignore it? I hope not. What Nabokov has accomplished is bringing an awareness to the topic. If you find this book so upsetting then I would suggest you stop watching the news, get off the internet and move to an underground cave where you won't be exposed to anything you deem offensive or disturbing. Or just stick to reading shallow romance novels that leave you feeling warm and fuzzy instead of a book that will raise your awareness the issue.
